    What is the reason for making the FDR connection?

    Do you have more of a connection than "it was bought near..."?

    Any provenance or OLD writing on the back?

    I was on a tour of the FDR's place when I was younger and I recall the guide saying one of the portraits was missing and they wondered why the girl got more attention than the son in those days maybe from illness , so that stuck in my mind and then I looked up on and the photo of baby James strikes a similarity to me. There is writing on the back. I will upload another photo .
